Why Attend Cycle County Active County?

Key projects from Essex County Council: building in activity

More than 136,000 new homes will be needed over the next 20 years, 6,800 per year, across Essex County Council’s boundaries (when the unitary authorities of Southend and Thurrock are included, that figure rises to 180,000 homes).

It's important that new homes and regeneration projects are planned from the outset with integrated, sustainable transport connectivity, including first / last mile active travel options that supplement public transport and intelligent mobility solutions such as demand responsive and shared transport. Essex County Council will share their proposed plans for such new development, and benefit from best practice learning from regions that are facing similar challenges. 

Major schemes include the Essex Cycling Strategy, Essex Walking Strategy, Modal Shift Strategy, LCWIP, Sustainable Modes of Travel Strategy (SmoTS), a Sport England Local Delivery Pilot and travel planning schemes.

500+ delegates regularly attend Europe's largest annual gathering of cycling and walking development professionals.

The Cycle City Active City series has an impressive legacy, with well-attended and respected events in BirminghamLeedsNewcastleLeicester and Bradford.

Cycle County Active County, the 7th event in the series, will feature presentations, knowledge sharing and networking opportunities for the professionals delivering walking and cycling projects across the UK and beyond.

Come and meet the DfT team: officers will be on hand to talk about a range of topics including Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans, funded programmes such as Access Fund and Bikeability, monitoring and evaluation tools and using new WebTAG guidance for delivering Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans.

Delegates at this event will:

  • Learn how schemes from around the world are getting more people to cycle and walk for everyday journeys

  • Understand how to motivate women, children and older people to be physically active in their everyday lives

  • See how streets and neighbourhoods can easily support active, healthy lifestyles

  • Understand new opportunities for using public health frameworks and funding streams 

  • Make a strong business case for investing in active travel and activity-friendly places

  • Leave better informed and better prepared to develop active travel and active spaces in your locality
